Using a Motivational Interviewing (MI) approach towards behavior change contains two primary concepts; the role of ambivalence in a change process and the concept of Change Talk. Sessions 3 and 4 build upon two previous sessions of learning MI. In these sessions the trainers will focus on how the helper can process ambivalence when engaging a client in a change process and defining, eliciting and attending to a clients' own motivation to change using their language (Change Talk).
